Effective November 21, 2019.
Information You Provide to Us
We collect information you provide to us directly when you use the Services. This includes:
Account information. To create an account, you must provide a username, password, name, email address and bio. Your username and name is public, and it doesn’t have to be related to your real name. We also store your user account preferences and settings.
Content you submit. We collect the content you submit to the Services. This includes your posts and comments including saved drafts, your messages with other users (e.g., private messages, chats, and modmail), and your reports and other communications with moderators and with us. Your content may include text, links, images, gifs, and videos.
Actions you take. We collect information about the actions you take when using the Services. This includes your interactions with content, like voting, saving, hiding, and reporting. It also includes your interactions with other users, such as following, friending, and blocking. We collect your interactions with communities, like your subscriptions or moderator status.
Other information. You may choose to provide other information directly to us. For example, we may collect information when you fill out a form, participate in OxiBuzz-sponsored activities or promotions, apply for a job, request customer support or otherwise communicate with us.
Information We Collect Automatically
When you access or use our Services, we may also automatically collect information about you. This includes:
Log and usage data. We may log information when you access and use the Services. This may include your IP address, user-agent string, browser type, operating system, referral URLs, device information (e.g., device IDs), pages visited, links clicked, the requested URL, hardware settings, and search terms. Except for the IP address used to create your account, OxiBuzz will delete any IP addresses collected after 100 days.
Information collected from cookies and similar technologies. We may receive information from cookies, which are pieces of data your browser stores and sends back to us when making requests, and similar technologies. We use this information to improve your experience, understand user activity, personalize content and advertisements, and improve the quality of our Services. For example, we store and retrieve information about your preferred language and other settings.
Location information. We may receive and process information about your location. For example, with your consent, we may collect information about the specific location of your mobile device (for example, by using GPS or Bluetooth). We may also receive location information from you when you choose to share such information on our Services, including by associating your content with a location, or we may derive your approximate location from other information about you, including your IP address.
Like most website operators, OxiBuzz collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. OxiBuzz’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how OxiBuzz’s visitors use its website. From time to time, OxiBuzz may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
OxiBuzz also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on https://oxibuzz.com blog posts. OxiBuzz only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to OxiBuzz’s websites choose to interact with OxiBuzz in ways that require OxiBuzz to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that OxiBuzz gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for a blog at https://oxibuzz.com to provide a username and email address.
The security of your Personal Information is important to us, but remember that no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage is 100% secure. While we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your Personal Information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
OxiBuzz discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on OxiBuzz’s behalf or to provide services available at OxiBuzz’s website, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using OxiBuzz’s website, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. OxiBuzz will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, OxiBuzz discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when OxiBuzz believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of OxiBuzz, third parties or the public at large.
If you are a registered user of https://oxibuzz.com and have supplied your email address, OxiBuzz may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with OxiBuzz and our products. We primarily use our blog to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. OxiBuzz takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
OxiBuzz may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its website. OxiBuzz may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, OxiBuzz does not disclose your personally-identifying information.

Those who engage in transactions with OxiBuzz – by purchasing OxiBuzz’s services or products, are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, OxiBuzz collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with OxiBuzz.

If OxiBuzz, or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, or in the unlikely event that OxiBuzz goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party.
